One account must have played on Xbox One or Switch and the other on PS4 before September 28th 2018 to be eligible.

Fortnite surprise-launched for Nintendo Switch at E3 2018.

Fortnite's initially messy approach to cross-platform gaming meant that many people ended up creating two (or more) accounts in order to be able to play with their friends.

Players who had accessed their Epic Account on Windows, Xbox One or mobile, however, weren't impacted.

Epic Games has also confirmed the items that will not be merged, as well as those that can be. That's quite a good news story on the back of Fortnite. You can then use this primary account on any platform, since every version of Fortnite now allows for cross-platform play.

Gamers need to sign into both accounts and designate a primary account.

Neither of your accounts can be now banned or disabled because, you know, that's the rules.

That's led to many fans having multiple accounts - one for each platform they play on - and these accounts might have vastly different V-Buck totals, and cosmetic items unlocked. Here's how to merge Fortnite accounts from PlayStation 4 to other consoles and transfer items from secondary accounts into the player's primary account. The website asks you to select a primary account, the account that all the other accounts will join.

You can merge all cosmetics from Battle Royale.

The user must have access to all associated email addresses used in the Fortnite accounts. Just make sure you buy nothing new in your second account, you don't want your new items to be lost in purgatory.

Select the account you want to keep (primary account). The secondary account will be merged to the primary account, meaning all cosmetics will move to the player's desired main account, and will then be disabled.

Don't freak out if you don't see new items and/or V-Bucks in your unified account right away. The whole process should take about two weeks, after which all items and V-Bucks will be in a unified under one happy roof. Do you at all play Fortnite on a regular basis?
